Molettes de Jamon y Frijole make for a wonderful brunch. Crusty rolls, split and slathered with refried beans, topped with ham, cheese and a fried egg. What's not to love. Add a sprinkle of pico de gallo for a pop of color and brunch is ready in less than 20 minutes.
The Sunday Funday Bloggers are hosting a Mother's Day Brunch......
I want to start off by wishing all the women out there who in any way are helping or have helped to form and raise another human being a very Happy Mother's Day.
When my friend Amy of Amy's Cooking Adventures announced the theme for today's event I was very pleased. What a great opportunity to acknowledge all the hard work, patience and love it takes to raise a child.
Knowing that I was going to be spending Mother's Day in Mexico I decided to use that as inspiration for my brunch recipe. I was also inspired to use up some of the Easter ham, as I tested and served this recipe for a Mexican Monday the day following Easter.
I did a google search and was originally going to make a Torta (Sandwich) but as I was reading through I saw several recipes for Molettes, an open faced sandwich. All the recipes I saw contained refried beans and cheese that were melted and topped with pico de gallo. Then there were variations, some contained eggs, some contained ham, some used hot sauce. It is pretty much a Mexican Grilled Cheese so you can use any toppings that you like.

As you are reading this I am spending my first full day in Cabo San Lucas. My son, Chuck, is with us. This is the first mother's day that I have spent with Chuck in over 10 years. I hope that you are doing something wonderful on this day as well. Adios for now.
